  1. I’d like to correct this article stating that the UFC PPVs are limited to only 2 simultaneous streams per account, unlike usual ESPN+ content.

  2. Would be good to know if there are any issues with using my espn+ account on a friend’s TV for UFC PPV. Sounds easy enough to add my espn+ to his smart TV setup and watch the PPV, but it would be better to have it spelled out before I order the event.

    1. My best guess is that you’d be fine doing that. Sounds like it should work! Enjoy the fights.
